Sierra McClain credits her confidence and success on her experiences working with her sisters.
“I don’t think I would’ve been as comfortable at all if I hadn’t had the background of working with my sisters,” Sierra told TeenVogue.com. “Even watching my sisters has helped me, too. Even though I haven’t worked in a while, I was on set constantly, so I feel like I’ve been around it forever even if I wasn’t necessarily in front of the camera.”
She continued, “And then all of my studio work with my father, [music producer and engineer, Michael McClain] definitely prepared me for the studio sessions here…I was so nervous in the beginning; I didn’t know if I could do this. But it was him talking to me and calling me saying, ‘Listen, you’ve been doing this forever here with me and with the girls. You can do it. You’re ready for it. Go in there and be confident.’ There’s no telling what would’ve happened if I hadn’t had that.”
